Nestlé Waters France to use Alstom developed hydrogen-powered freight train from 2025

In line with plans of decarbonising its supply chains, Nestlé Waters France is set to operate a hydrogen-powered freight train supplied by Alstom, from 2025.

The new freight train is set to be powered by electricity from the rail network, and hydrogen in non-electrified sections of track, to ensure the transport of Nestlé’s VITTEL® natural mineral water between its factory in Vosges, France, and various distribution centres across the country.

Developed by Alstom, the train will compose a generator wagon incorporating a high-power fuel cell system, powered by renewable hydrogen supplied by ENGIE, and a line-electric locomotive, connected by an electrical power cable.
